Celebrated Chinese musician/composer visits Medfield High School

From 9:50 to 11:10 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 19, in the high school auditorium, Music Director Doug Olsen will be hosting the prominent Chinese erhu player, jazz musician and composer Yang Ying who will be addressing Medfield’s high school music students, and talking about her varied musical career path and experimentation with different kinds of music (in some cases under an oppressive regime in China).

Later in the day, Ying will be working with the Medfield High School Jazz Band and participating in a “listening session” to help guide her task of creating a composition for the band in preparation for its music trip to China in the spring.

The morning presentation is free and open to the public.

The Medfield Music Association will have an information table on hand for optional donations.
